If you want to learn calligraphy, then you’ve found the best starting place

I teach a wide variety of calligraphy styles at evening classes, one-day workshops. I also give Online clases using Zoom or Skype for groups or individuals. They include Modern Calligraphy, Gothic Calligraphy, Italic Calligraphy and Gold Leaf & Illuminated lettering courses. I can teach you about Brush Lettering to use on baubles and cards.

New to the art of calligraphy are my Ink Resist classes, which provide a very colourful presentation to your work.

Currently all of my calligraphy workshops are based in the UK – particularly in the Midlands.

You can learn in Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham, Lincoln, Newark, Northampton and Market Harborough. I also have residential courses at Denman College in Oxfordshire.

My workshops and classes are great whether you are a beginner or more experienced. Young people are most welcome to come along and learn.

Please feel free to take a look and book your calligraphy course today, but be quick – they do fill up fast!


Here are all my current workshops and classes. Take a look, choose and book.
I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.

{I have had a very happy day, learning a new skill in an informal setting. I find it so therapeutic to concentrate on a different task and not another thought about 'normal life' passed through my mind! There was so much to choose from... needed more than a day really! Thank you.{

{Jane held our first craft Zoom workshop for the Cumbria-Westmorland Federation of WI's. She was very helpful and patient answering all our questions. The workshop ran extremely smoothly and all the participants came away with new skills to show their friends and family when the situation allows. Thank you Jane for an enjoyable afternoon.{
{I have just completed a ‘colourful greetings card’ course with Jane. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 hours online not only learning new skills but the friendly atmosphere. Jane was very generous in her sharing information regarding equipment that she has tried and tested. I went to her online shop and bought paints etc. and that order is now winging its way to me ready for the next course. I have booked another 2 courses and hope to do more in the future. Thank you Jane I am so pleased I found you.{
{Jane's courses on line are great. She covers everything you need to know to make beautiful cards. She also has a great art shop where you can buy already tested pens and nibs, inks and paints etc etc to help you . I would highly recommend having a go.{
{We had a group Faux Calligraphy Zoom session with Jane for our WI which was excellent. Very informative and fun. The sheets of Faux emailed out to us beforehand allowed those who wished to try during the demonstration to do so. Feedback from members was very positive with one commenting that she is not really a craft person but had enjoyed it immensely.{

{I recently attended a virtual talk on Calligraphy given by Jane from Calligraphy Arts. It was a great talk with lots of information about Calligraphy and all its forms. Jane demonstrated how to use different methods to get brilliant effects when designing our own cards or for just personal use. Would highly recommend the talk.{

{I have Zoomed in to two of your Denman sessions.  I really enjoyed them and found your instruction very easy to follow and helpful.  I find it relaxing practicing calligraphy and liked all your tips. Many thanks, Jean Mills.{
